running Mailman 2.1.9. I have tried to find the answer to this question 
in the FAQs but didn't succeed. Please bear with me if this has been 
asked before.

As per the configure parameters --with-mailhost and --with-urlhost I 
have in my Defaults.py the following definitions:

DEFAULT_EMAIL_HOST = 'lists.domain.com'
DEFAULT_URL_HOST = 'lists.domain.com'

Mailman is running on a host with name 'hostname.domain.com'

When I first tried to create a list, Mailman gave the following error 

Error: Unknown virtual host: hostname.domain.com

Then I added the line:


to the end of mm_cfg.py. Now that solved my problem of the list 
creation. However, whenever a new list is created, the URL's in all list 
related messsages contain http://hostname.domain.com and NOT 

How can I use the lists.domain.com to show up in the URL in messages 
that go to subscribers, moderators etc.?
